to a wide variety of government agencies and passing that onto the fbi for inclusion in its database about who can and can not buy guns. things that would indicate mental health problems, what have you. i think there are also potentially looking at recess appointing the head of the atf, the alcohol, tobacco and firearms bureau, which hasn't had a head since 2006. those are a couple of things that the white house might be looking at doing sort of on its own. bill: we're about to dive back into the debt fight and the spending issues in washington. mitch mcconnell says that will take up the next few months of time. >> yeah. bill: so you start now to see the strategy as to why the white house would pursue executive action if they follow what the president said after newtown, that he is not going to delay on this. >> right. it's been interesting. we've seen the white house of course do this. for a white house that came in, a president that came in having railed in the 2008 campaign against sort of the overreach of executive power, he has shown very little restraint in using executive power hims
to reduce gun violence. >> before we let you go, we're talking about the fbi building sort of crumbling as it stands. >> yes. >> maryland and virginia, looking to bring that huge facility and the jobs and what have you into each state. you're interested in bringing the building to virginia? >> absolutely. the right answer is what's right for the fbi. i'm going to be passionate about virginia, and i expect folks from maryland will be passionate about maryland. but the right answer is what's right for the mission of the fbi. we think in virginia we've got good selling points on the table on that question, what's right for the fbi. huge kind of plurality of the fbi employees in virginia. we have significant fbi assets in virginia at quantico and manassas and having headquarters that's in close proximatity to the training centers and other fbi facilities makes a lot of sense from a cost standpoint. with the budget, we're dealing with rough budget issues. i think we'll be able to put options on the table in virginia that make a lot of sense from a cost standpoint. we're going to make our bes
f.b.i. agent levinson who disappeared there in 2007. the "associated press" report the high quality of the images sent anonymously to his family two years ago led to the conclusion. iran denied any involvement. the administration begins a new gun control effort. we will talk about it with the fox all-stars when we come back. living with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis means living with pain. it could also mean living with joint damage. help relieve the pain and stop the damage with humira, adalimumab. for many adults with moderate to severe ra, humira is clinically proven to help relieve pain and stop joi damage. so you can treat more than just the pain. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, have happened. blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worseng heart failure have occurred. before starting humira, your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you live in or have been to a region where certain f
of national intelligence, and the national security elements of the fbi were merged into the national security branch. these efforts were born of the need to institutionalize and facilitate information sharing, to bridge a gap that existed between intelligence and law- enforcement capabilities. on the heels of this change, it became evident that another service was in pretty high demand. it is what the commission called a thoughtful, innovative, and constructive legal guidance. following recommendations from the commission and others, the national security division was created in the department of justice to ensure unity of purpose among intelligence lawyers and the community on one hand with law-enforcement and prosecutors on the other. the division functions really reflect a removal of legal, structural, and cultural barriers. they have brought the department's national security elements under one roof and into closer alignment with those of the fbi and the rest of the national security community. as these lawyers work as terrorism and espionage prosecutors, they work as intelligence lawyers
briefing along with the attorney-general and the director of the fbi. just like the analysts and special agents who are working these issues, we aim to stay on top of the threat picture and to help devise tactics and strategies and tools for getting ahead of it. today its standard -- it is standard procedure for agents conducting counterterrorism investigations to consult throughout the process with attorneys and prosecutors in the national security division. that is to ensure that all potential avenues for destruction of a threat, intelligence gathering, investigation and prosecution are all preserved. if you asked me to break down how much intelligence versus how much law enforcement work we do, i would be hard pressed to give you an answer. we are almost always pursuing multiple tracks at the same time. we no longer have to across organizational lines to bring tools and talent to bear against a particular threat or problem. for instance, our office lawyers in the office of intelligence work day in and day out with the intelligence community to secure authorities under the surveillance
over each of the 166 counts against james holmes. we also heard from an fbi bomb tech, an atf supervisor, who testified about the extent to which holmes booby-trapped his apartment with homemade napalm, propane and gas triggers. in the two months leading up tote shooting holmes purchased 6295 rounds of ammunition as well as tear gas, ballistic gear and handcuffs. on cross-examinations holmes defense attorney asked one of the agents if there was anything in colorado law that prevented someone with mental illness from making any of these purchases and the agent said no, jenna. jenna: there comes up for one of the first times it is coming up in this preliminary hearing. we know the defense will be calling its own witness. tell us about who those people potentially could be and also how does that procedure, a defense calling witnesses in this preliminary hearing, how typical is that? >> that isn't something that usually happens but legal analysts are saying that what they think is happening here is that the defense is using this opportunity in the hearing to start the process of b
interested in what we were doing, and so the assistant director of the fbi for counter-terrorism came to west point and said the fbi could benefit from this kind of education as well. and so they asked west point to go and expand our education for cadets to what we now call practitioner education. we send people from west point and combating and they teach each new about a boc of instruction on terrorism to reinforce the things that are taught at the f.b.i. academy. we also send them out around the nation to be able to work with joint terrorism task forces, which is not just f.b.i. people, but also law enforcement and others to educate them on the terrorist threat and the changes. and then creating a virtual network because of the connections of everybody on the internet so that when pracktigsners that are out there in police departments or the f.b.i. are studying a particular case or aspect of terrorism they can reach back into the literature and research at west point and get a little bit more expertise and the history and the background and the theory that they're able to do. >> what kind
interested in what we were doing, and so the assistant director of the fbi for counter- terrorism came to west point and said the fbi could benefit from this kind of education as well. and so they asked west point to go and expand our education for cadets to what we now call practitioner education. we send people from west point and combating terrorism center down to quantico, virginia, to the fbi academy, and they teach each new agent and new analyst instruction on terrorism to reinforce the kinds of things that are taught at the fbi academy. to come here and be informed about what we are doing to counter terrorism and where that is going. i'll tell you a little bit about that. i do want to state for all of you and especially for c-span these are my personal academic opinions and not the position of the united states government so they have that disclaimer out there. although, as you'll hear as i'm talking about it, i think it should be the position of the united states government. >> we know of osama bin lot and hiding and others hiding in various areas and in other places until the
me describe the scene inside the apartment. the fbi bomb technician said, there was a fishing line strung across the apartment at a level of about five feet. clearly intended for someone to walk into. it was attached to to a container of glycerin which was up on a shelf above a frying pan that had another material in it. and the idea was for the glycerin to mix with that other material and explode. also in the apartment, napalm, the floor was soaked with gasoline. there were canisters on the floor of some other type of explosive materials. and now it gets -- if that's not enough, it gets more bizarre. outside of the apartment, there was a boom box playing music. next to it, a remote control car that was also intended apparently for someone to go look at the music, maybe play with the remote control car, that would have also set off the explosion. given all of this planning, i think they're trying to show premeditation. also, there was evidence presented yesterday in the afternoon about him buying his ticket. he purchased his ticket online 12 days before the shooting. there was vide
of auditors and criminal investigators. more than the fbi. it's not just our size, mandate, or unique authority that is important. it is how we and how i view our mission and how our agency sees that mission. when i joined sigar, i made it clear on the first day that you should view this as a mission and not as a job. if you see this as a job, as a place to retire in place, you should leave, because i only wanted people with fire in the belly, because we have a limited amount of time to do good in the construction in afghanistan. i have used that fire in the belly speech so much that my chief of staff has coined a new term called "fitb." it has worked. i am proud of my 200 agents, auditors, and investigators, because they all have that fire in the belly. they can work elsewhere. some of them are working in the worst conditions. they're working in conditions as bad as our military is in afghanistan. many of them are housed in the same facilities. they take the mission because they believe in it. that is the difference with sigar. that's why i think we can make a difference. i also told
interviewed. there were clues in the fbi. the fbi did not talk to the cia. we came up with a model that fixed the pentagon. the pentagon used to have the services staffing and fighting separate wars. they would equip themselves separately. we decided to do what the military did. a joint command was created. he can come from any military service. they now trained and equipped to gather. -- togetherthe dni is the joint commander across 16 intel agencies. he leverage is their strength to produce intel products. that is the backbone of how we get intelligence to policy makers and that has dramatically improved. on the fusion centers, that is a different thing. those are local centers that have gone up to serve local law enforcement. they pull together national intelligence streams that they get from the homeland security department or the fbi with streams of local intelligence and a share it. the homelands department has tried to insist on privacy in these agencies and provide some financial support. this is a work in progress. some of them worked very well. one in los angeles works very well. ot
for ambassador rice. he's been told it was the director of national intelligence, the f.b.i., the c.i.a. but says -- quote -- "this ever-changing story should be resolved." back to you guys in new york. brian, do you think he'll be out for a year? >>brian: we're going to find out today, if he flies to pensacola, florida, in the owner's plane to find out if the l.c.l. and a.c.l. is torn. we'll see. there is a lot of swelling. but i heard that you will personally go over to his house and ice his knee down, molly. is that true? >> i am a very loyal fan. whatever it takes. >>gretchen: we should preface by saying you are a huge redskins fan. >>brian: i had no idea. >>gretchen: she's wearing the colors even today. >>brian: can you seed that field? it is the worst field in the league. the grass is lumpy. >> we're the team in the tradition of the hogs. we're not worried about the field. play football. don't complain about the field. play football. >>brian: play football but his knee is a little unwieldy. >> curt cousins should have been in. >>brian: she is our correspondent in the bureau but yet she want
also created the department of home and security, and the national security elements of the fbi were merged into its national security branch. these efforts were born of the need to institutionalize and facilitate information sharing and to bridge a gap that existed between our intelligence and law-enforcement capabilities. on the heels of all of this change, it also became evident that and other service was in high demand, it is what the wmd commission called "thoughtful and constructive legal guidance." following recommendations from that commission and others, the national security division was created within the department of justice to make sure we have a unity of purpose among the intelligence community and law enforcement and prosecutors. functions division's reflect the removal of legal and cultural barriers. nsd has brought them under one roof and is in closer alignment with those of the fbi and the rest of the national security community. nsd's lawyers worked as terrorism prosecutors alongside their colleagues in the u.s. attorney offices around the country and they work as
to do things to make sure the database of the fbi has all of the information so people can't buy guns that shouldn't have guns. >> the vice president laid out some of the ideas emerging from his task force on thursday but did not mention a new assault weapons ban stirring speculation that the white house is dropping the proposal but the white house says that's not so. an administration spokesman told cnn avoiding this issue because it's been politically difficult in the past is not an option. that's despite what will be fierce opposition from the nation's top gun lobby, the national rifle association. >> i do not think there's going to be a ban on assault weapons passed by the congress. >> the nra plans an aggressive campaign and can point to what happened in 1994 when president bill clinton signed the last assault weapons ban into law. democrats lost both houses of congress to republicans. >> these become the only republican candidate in indiana with an f rating from the nra. >> last year the nra proved it was willing to go after the gop as well, running this ad against dick lugar. t
are people who have been cleared for transfer, that the cia and department justice and the fbi and the burden of defense has looked at and concluded that we're not going to prosecute them, we don't have evidence and we don't believe they present a significant risk and we don't want to keep them. but they have been sitting year after year at guantanamo because of their citizenship. trust the yemeni government to be responsible for the detainee's which i find interesting. the justification for the drone program is that we have the consent of the yemeni government. they are defined government when they give consent to kill people but not trust for the one comes to taking detainee's. it seems we are a bit hypocritical in our view of yemen. i think guantanamo remains a stain on our reputation. recently, congress passed a bill that prohibits granting visas to members of the russian government who abuse human rights violations. president obama signed it. in retaliation, the russian government passed a bill that prohibits americans from adopting russian children and president vladimir putin before s
and criminal investigators, more than any other ig, more than any other fbi but it's not just her size in our mandate or unique authorities that is important. it's how we and how i view our mission and how are agency views our mission. when i joined sigar, i made it clear on the first day i got there that you should view this as a mission calm, not as a job. if you view this as a job, if you view it as a place to retire and play, you should leave because i only want people and it's a term i use, with fire in the valley because belly because we have a limited amount of time to do good in reconstruction in afghanistan. i abuse that fire in the belly speech so much that my chief of staff has coined a new term called 50 fire in the belly. aphis be memos and you know something, it worked. i am proud of my 200 agent auditors and investigators because they all have that ire in the belly. they could work elsewhere elsewhere. they are working in conditions as bad as our military is in afghanistan but many of them are housed in the same facility. there are men and women, but they take that mission beca
in the database. when you buy a gun, and they call into what we call the nik system that the fbi runs, that runs it through all the databases, and says whether you can or cannot buy that gun, now, if you've been adjudicated to be a violent schizophrenic, you may not be on that list, and we think that you should be. a lot of the other proposals in the strictly gun area that the administration is making are what i call feel-good proposals. >> okay. >> for example, the high-capacity magazinese magazi. why do people need those. >> the ar-15s -- >> do you have an ar-15? >> i do not, but my daughter does. >> what does she need it for? >> a lot of people who have served in the military, like to shoot for fun at the range, and in competition, the same gun they learned on or something similar to the same gun. she was in the army, she learned on a military weapon, this is the semi-automatic civilian version of that. it's the only gun she owns because she likes to go to the range and she likes to shoot it. >> you heard general mcchrystal say last night on cnn, he doesn't see why these military-type weapons
